I actually created my second tag first. This was my second version following Tim's techniques. I brayered my background on this one.
I used the Silver Distress Paint for the left side and the Peacock Feathers Distress Stain for the right side of my tag. I just purchased the Eiffel Tower Die about a month ago and hadn't had a chance to use it. I die cut a chipboard tower and a piece of an old book. I then Stamped the harlequin pattern in versamark and heat embossed to form a resist. I sponged with the silver stain and then added a layer of the peacock feathers distress stain over that. I repeated several times to get a darker shade of blue. I stamped over the background of my tag the map to tie into my dream / voyage theme.
My second tag started with an alcohol ink background:
I used crackle paint on my stars and my bird die. I then layered in the stamping in the background with black ink and then embossed the flowers along the side.
